Angel And An ApPearl©



YATTA!!! (Hiro Nakamura style, of course!) For those not in the know of this "YATTA" in-thang, here, watch this clip!




Okay, so what am I Yatta-ing about? My new Toy... The Greatest Fruit On Earth... The Apple Computer... Yup, I've converted from this...




...all thanks to great influence by Le Apple Emperor & Concubine M. Oh, and another friend too, who wanted to get the same 'toy'.

Mine is Pearl(y), my friend's is Blackie... Kakaka...


Okay, initally, I wanted to get the Pro version (RM7,799) but in the end, I chickened out because this is my first Appearl©, I thought that I should start to 'walk' first instead of run for fear of 'falling down' h.a.r.d. on my face... well, not literally, of course!

And when I thought, okay, Blackie should be it (which is RM700 more expensive than the white, the only difference is the hardisk space, 40GB more, and the colour of course) because a White would turn Black in no time! But when I was at the Premium Reseller store, Machines at Mid-Valley Megamall last week, Joewen changed my mind. Yeah, this chap did some sales talk to me about the Airport Express and... I am a sucker.




So, for RM5,858, I got the white 13-inch 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (with 1GB memory, 80GB hard drive), a blue iPod Shuffle (FOC), the Wireless Mighty Mouse (FOC), a black sleeve for the MacBook, keyboard protector (like the iPod skin) and Airport Express Base Station with AirTunes. (Freethinker, 9 other users can share Internet connection with me. See, I no bluff you...)


Nah, scau, the Nipple that Rolls...

My verdict? So far, I love what I see. Way more canggih than Windows and I think it's also smarter than Windows. How so? Dunno how to explain, just take my word for it lah! I still have a lot to learn and I feel so challenged. Anyone else out there can help this damsel? Helppp, cp1!!!

Happy Sunday! Anyone going for hi-tea @ Nikko Hotel in a bit? *wink*

ps: Happy Belated Birthday, Rocker Kenny Ng! (His birthday was yesterday, 21st April)

L B said...

most welcome... It is so nice when someone finally closes their eye and leaps blindly into the realm of the Apple Kingdom, and then realizes that they will never have to ever worry about Virus again.. No more condoms! No need Morning After Pills.. No fear of reproducing more unwanted Apples.. Apart from all that, isn't the Apple just so nice to touch as well?

mistipurple said...

can tell me why ah, apple better than 'normal' computers? graphic wise or many other things? i many years ago wanted to buy apple desktop, but somehow because people around me all not using apple, so i sidetracked. i see all advertising and graphic and music people using apple though. please tell me why good ah?
and it is definitely going to be difficult for noobies like me to start right?

mistipurple said...

just saw LB's reply on the virus bit. that's one reason amongst many i am sure. but compatibility susah or not? alot of systems and softwares don't use apple.

Monk[+]Icon said...

Wah, auction my transformers...i think i no need to buy apple laptops, can buy 1% share in apple inc liao...

p/s: wakakka..now u know the gerogerogero... next time i pass u the series.. lagi funny! gegero~

angel said...

Dear Appearl© sifu...
Haha... ya, close my eyes and leaped I did! Oh yeah, I like the No Condom part... anytime can do, can play! Oops...

My Appearl© is so clean... so pure... white white tei... sometimes when I stared at the small 13", I said to myself, "Aiyahhh... next, I want the iMac 20" liao lar..." Haha...

**********
Dear misti...
Waa... very tough questions neh... The graphics is top notch. The 'other' things, like what the Emperor says, no need to be afraid of virus anymore, no more condoms, wheee!!

Advertising, graphic and music ppl use Macs because I think that's what Macs do best... esp. when it has something to do with graphics, videos and such...

Noobies like you? Haha... I felt like a noobie at first but slowly slowly, sure can learn wan... so, like what our Emperor says, "Close your eyes and jump!"

*waits for you on The Other Side*

About compatibality, what kind of softwares are you referring to? MS Office & Photoshop can also be used on Macs ar... but if die die must use Windows, now you can also use Windows on a Mac! Fear not! It's a software called Parallels Desktop for Mac. When you install this, your Mac can run on Windows. (Did I say this correctly, Emperor Apple??)

Thank you for calling the blur blur tei Appearl© Helpdesk... kkkk...

*still waiting for you to Leap*
;)

**********
Dear ah monk...
Hahaha!! Waaaa!!! Then you should really auction all your toys liao! Gerogerogerogerogero! Hahaha... so funny...

**********

L B said...

Well said, not-so-virgin-anymore Appearl Jedimaster.. Apart from Parallels Desktop, there is also Bootcamp, but I think Parallels is the one that can run Windows Vistas.

Misti ~ It's not so much that the Apple is difficult to use as in that you're just so used to Windows, that's all. If you are a total newbie to computers, you'll find the Apple Mac much more easier to understand, and intuitive. That's why Windows has been trying to copy the Mac from Day One..

L B said...

*I am so passionate about Apple that I scare myself sometimes*

L B said...

Did you see Hugh Grant using the Mac's GarageBand software to compose 'Way Back Into Love'?

angel said...

Dear Appearl© Sifu,...
Waa... thank you, thank you!
*wipes sweat cos too tension dunno if answered correctly or not*
Haha...

I've not seen Bootcamp here before...

The last time I used an Apple computer was when I was in the uni... at that time, it was called the Macintosh :D That was the only computer that I knew how to use then... Was only introduced to Windows when I started work...

Haha... why scared wor? I have another friend who's totally crazy over Mac, who used to work in Intel & AMD before, but now, has got his own business liao... He also used to 'preach' to me about Macs haha... so u are not alone...kkkk

Ohhhh!!! So that's GarageBand! YAATTTAAA!!

Thank you again for the invaluable lesson... hey, maybe you should start a blog for the Converts... haha...

L B said...

New Episode Tomorrow!! YAAATTTTTAAAAA!!!!!!!!

angel said...

Haha!! Yeahhh! YAATTTTAAAA!!! Whoa... did you see the trailer of the last five episodes?? That Hiro's hair looked like Superman wan... yaattaaa!!!

Leon said...

Interesting hardware you got there...

*envy* *drools*

zewt said...

looks like you have not joined the My List thingy... so proud of you.

i think it's just a scam for the person who started it to get his technorati ranking going up.

angel said...

Dear Leon,...
Hey there again, stranger! :P

Why you envy wor? You are in advertising, you are not using one of these hardwares?

*helps to wipe your Envious Drool*
:P

**********
Dear zewt,...
Like what I said to you, I've not even been Nuffnang-ed nor Advertlet-ed nor Google Adsensed nor PPP-ed! Of course that List is aimed at hiking ppl's technorati or whatnots' ranking... I also got rank wat... PR4... whatever that means...

ps: Why suddenly you talk about the List wan? *scratches head*

L B said...

Then it's definitely TIME to TAG you for the LIST!!

angel said...

Dear sifu,...
What TAG?
What LIST?

KKKKK... Appearl is the LCLA liao!

Okaylah, if you tag me with the List, I'll come out with my own List, how about that? Of cos I'll 'yik' ji gei geh pang yao lar... what for yik someone I dunno, kan? KAN?? YAATTAAA!!
